    Just checking to see if there's a tweak or hack to make the Perform VEs LEDS less intense. Currently their brightness could interfere with stage light design if the Perform VE is placed on a mic stand by a vocalist. Especially if the stage is meant to go dark, but the unit still keeps shining on a vocalist's face from below - pretty weird

    I saw some other model had a hardware update fix for this, is there something similar for the Perform VE?

      Hi there - there was a firmware update for the Perform-V which I have, not sure about the VE.


      If you haven't already, download VoiceSupport 2 and see if there's a firmware update for your device.

      On the Perform-V, when the update is complete, a tap on the 'Set' button then allows you to change the brightness using the central dial.

      Hey @Elden,
      Unfortunately it isn't possible to adjust the brightness of the LEDs on Perform-VE.  The other pieces of the Perform series did receive an update to adjust their brightness (with the "Set" button), but Perform-VE's user interface is so overloaded with multifunctional buttons we've run out of places to assign new features and thus didn't add a brightness adjustment for the VE.  Sorry

    Hello. My 3 switch works on the VE and the VL3X but my 6 switch only works on the VE not the VL3X. What gives? Thanks Barkus

    Does any creative using VoiceLive 3/3x to setup that can mimic the backgroud or harmony or what it called like the chorus you will hear in the song of PLAY THAT FUNKY MUSIC by Wild Cherry? can any body creative there that can share an idea if you have in your mind or guess?

    thank you so much.

    Hi All,

    I have a VoiceLive 3 Extreme adn I've been trying to import backing tracks for a few hours now. I save the tracks as .wav files, made them 24bit at 48000, but when I try to import the track into the VL3X, only the USB drive is reognized and NOT the files. The files don't even show up. What am I doing wrong here? I have a gig in two weeks and really need to make sure the unit works and the set is fluid!

    Many Thanks!

      Hey @vavaenvivo,
      Backing tracks on your USB drive should live on the root of the drive, as in not in any folders.  Loops however should be in a "VL3_Loops" folder, and recordings direct to the drive will end up in a "VL3_Recordings" folder.  So hopefully your backing tracks are on the root of your flash drive.
      Also, "The internal audio file format of VL3X for Backing Tracks is 16 bit resolution and 48 kHz sampling rate" (from page 75 of the manual).  The VoiceLive should do the conversion from your 24 bit to its internal 16 bit, but if you have the ability to export your tracks at 16 bits that might be better.
      There's also the issue that some USB thumb drives just straight up don't work with the VoiceLive 3.  If possible, please try using a different drive.

      I'm actually having the same issue. I've exported a track from my DAW as wav 16 bit and 48kHz and put it on two different flash drives, plug the drives into VL3X and go to track import and there's nothing there. Did a factory reset and reinstalled newest update and it didn't help.

    I recently purchase the TC Helico Voice Live Play Acoustic.  Overall I am satisfied with the unit but would like to incorporate to external guitar effects pedals.  They are my Boss DS-1 distortion pedal and my Boss CH-1 chorus pedal.  I realize that the VLPA has a guitar chorus effect bulit in but have not found that to be very useful or effective and want to flexiblility and ease of control I get fom my Boss pedal.  Has anyone out there hooked up external effects to their VLPA?  If so, how and did it create any problems for you.

      Hi Melvin ( @mstojako ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  Take a look at the diagram on Page 23 of the manual.   Just insert your pedalboard in-between the VLPA and your amp and you should be fine.  If you aren't using an amp, just take the output of your pedalboard back to another channel on your mixer. 


       


      Then, under Guitar FX on the VLPA, make sure all of the FX are set to OFF. 


       


      Hope this helps, 


      Ken

      Thank You Ken!


      I'm currently running my VLPA directly into a JBLeon612. If I understand you correctly I would run my 1/4 guitar cable to the VLPA Guitar In then go from the VLPA Guitar Out to the Boss DS-1 via a  XLR Female -1/4" TRS Balanced Interconnect Cable.  I would run my Boss DS-1 into the Boss CH-1 with a 1/4" TR patch Cable and come out the CH-1 with either another  XLR Female -1/4" TRS Balanced Interconnect Cable to a XLR Male-XLR Female and plug into the JBLeon 612 or just go from the Boss CH-1 with a 1/4" TRS - XLR Male Balanced Interconnect Cable.

    Hello, I have recently purchased a VoiceLive 3 Extreme.

    Can the stereo guitar input be used to provide 2 separate inputs from my piezo & humbucker equipped guitar?

    I have a PRS hollowbody that I would like to use for both acoustic and humbucker songs. I have recently purchased a Parker "Y" cable that combines the 2 mono guitar signals into a stereo input jack.

    Thank you.

      I don't see any way to do that, since the VL3 only has a single guitar input. The way to get around it, is to use an A/B box after the VL3, and run to different amps, or channels. I use a similar guitar, and there are enough tweaks in the VL3 to handle acoustic, and electric sounds without running separate amps. [disclaimer} I do NOT use a lot of distotion effects, as I'm mostly rhythm, and surf leads.

      I realize that there is only 1 guitar input, but my understanding is that it's supposed to be a stereo jack. 


      The parker "Y" cable assigns the piezo to the to the tip of the sterio jack and assigns the humbucker to the ring of the sterio jack. (essentially 2 mono inputs in 1 stereo jack) 


      I would like to be able to set up my acoustic presets to draw from the pan left/tip input and the humbucker presets to draw from the pan right/ring of the sterio input jack.

      Hi Bill, 


       


      The Guitar Input on the VL3X is a TS Mono not Stereo.  The 3.5mm Aux input next to it is a stereo input but that's for line level accessories such as an iPod, etc.

    I posted a question about audio delay from the HP out on my Perform V, and received an email with this case number (00992729). I can't find any referance to this case. Help?

      Hi @Boydsongs 

      I do see that one of my Care colleagues responded to case 00992729 on 8/16/19 requesting more information however I just asked if they could reach back out to you - let me know if you receive their new email. Be sure to check your spam folder!

    Is there any way to make the button on the harmonies -- a momentary button. Instead of clicking on, you would hold it for harmonies to be on.

    I realize holding the button down was designed to serve a different purpose, causing the guitar to mute and tuner to engage, but I would gladly give those up for momentary function.

    I don't know if some of the other models that add vocal harmonies can be used as I am describing, my question is specifically about the GT-X.

      Hey @Marshall7714,
      Unfortunately the Harmony G-XT cannot behave as a momentary effect.  Like you pointed out, holding the footswitch is already reserved for the tuner.  Our Harmony Singer 2 pedal can be configured to act as a momentary effect, but sadly the Harmony G-XT cannot.  Cheers!

    Hello, I have the VK and VE. I got the VL3X because on the comparison chart (that I can't seem to locate now) it said it bascially had the same as the VE and VK and I am trying to eliminate them and use the one unit (VL3X). I do only Vocals/choir/ etc. no instruments beside a Duff drum. Can the VL3X do the same as the Rec/sample button on the VE where I can record AH or OO and then play it back as chord chorus/backround with a midi keyboard? And, at the same time play harmony voices like when I have the VK and VE midi connected to my keyboard? Thanks Barkus

      Hey @Barkus,
      Unfortunately the VoiceLive 3 can't record and play back samples at different pitches, you're stuck with real-time harmonies and looping.  The closest you could get to that behavior on a VL3 would be to use one of the notes mode harmony styles (at the end of the harmony styles list) for real-time harmonies controlled by a MIDI keyboard, and maybe record a drone note and loop that in the looper, but that pitch-shifted sample playback that Perform-VE can do isn't in any of our other products.  Cheers!

    I think the biggest missing feature of the Play Acoustic is that it offers two parametric EQs for the guitar, but not for the vocal! It would be great if one or both could be switchable to the vocal instead, as I already have guitar EQ available in my onboard preamp. I would love to recommend this to a singer friend of mine, but she needs a big cut at about 2.3KHz and the Play Acoustic won't do it.
